I fell apart. Not all at once...gradually....which in some ways is far worse because you don't even realize its happening. I starter working out less, emotional eating and trying to fight back my heart ache on my own. The end result was a 67 lb weight gain, severe physical pain and depression. It's taken me nearly 2 years to come back to Sparkpeople and try again, but I'm here and I'm ready to do the work!
